A bold and thought-provoking new theatre work that honors the national contribution of our local poets - both spoken and sung, past and present.

"Remember, sister, we are
Under sedation of habit, of hope, of lust”

Cooma-born A.D. Hope, in his poem Under Sedation, contemplates how we can possibly bear our civilisation.

Under Sedation: Canberra verse remixed  embraces compositions from one of the most vibrant poetic hubs in the nation. This new theatre work weaves together the old and the new, sung and spoken, published and drafted, applauded and unknown, the earnest and irreverent. Under Sedation transforms performance poetry from slam to stage to explore what may hurt or pacify. Under Sedation will not mark the first time that poetry has gone to the theatre but will see The Street transform local poetry into a bold, contemporary production to continue and enrich the dialogue that Canberra poets and songwriters have so generously brought to our community.

 

Featuring Ben Drysdale and Ruth Pieloor
Collected, Edited and Directed by Adele Chynoweth
